One of my steps to achieving weight loss is to cut out all unneccesary sugar. (or as much as I can) Check the ingredients list of foods and you will be surprised what has sugar in it.

I used to eat weetbix cause I thought it was the healthiest breakfast option. The second ingredient - raw sugar. I switched to Vita Brits because it doesnt contain any sugar.

Muesli bars also have high amounts of sugar - sometimes its the first ingredient in the list!

so be careful when buying something that you think is healthy - check the labels first.

A good book to read - Sugar Blues by William Dufty

A good rule of thumb is that if a product has more than 15g sugar per 100g then it has too much.

i believe in everything in moderation :) you can still have those things but not as often and not too much at once.
